Come Back, Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish illustrated by Wallace Tripp

Today is my sister Ann's birthday and for the last few years I have suggested books about Emily Dickinson as it is Emily's birthday too.   You can read about them here and here....they are still wonderful books especially Emily by Michael Bedard.   Today I am writing about a childhood favorite because whenever I see this book it reminds me of my sister.

Come Back, Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish and illustrated by Wallace Tripp is not one of the more popular Amelia Bedelia books but like I said it is one that I love.   This was my introduction to the character who is Amelia Bedelia.   I remember reading it for the first time and laughing out loud. My sister Ann bought this for me when I was feeling a bit down in the dumps.....I don't remember why I was sad but I know I was.   It was just like her to try and cheer me up....she has always done that for me.   It was appropriate she would think a book would do the trick....after all she is a writer.  It is a great beginning reader book that is perfect for the silly reader in your life....

Happy Birthday Ann Elizabeth, thanks for making me smile!

  1. I'm thinking that the real reason you posted this on my birthday is that amelia and I seem to share some character traits ;)
